Schalke 04 midfielder Omar Mascarell has attracted interest from Spanish side Villarreal and Turkish outfit Besiktas, according to Sky Germany.

The 28-year-old's agent is understood to be in talks with the two clubs over a possible transfer from the Gelsenkirchen club.

Mascarell, whose contract expires next year, is among the players likely to leave Schalke this summer, with the crisis-hit club looking to cut down their wage bill after getting relegated from the Bundesliga.

'The Royal Blues' paid €10 million to sign Mascarell from Real Madrid in 2018. He captained the club between January 2020 and February 2021.
